Harry Hay on Language and Labels in the 1930s




Another clip from the 1996 video interview with Mattachine Society founder Harry Hay in which he describes the absence of language to describes gays in the 1930s. The word "homosexual" wasn't even in the dictionary until about 1939, so he recounts how men in the community back then would refer to each other as "that way" or on a good day as "temperamental."
